This study reconsiders the narrow corridor proposed by Acemoglu and Robinson (2017) in an attempt to discover any underlying empirical patterns. Mainly building upon Murphy and O’Reilly (2022, 2023) we first replicate their findings. Afterwards we devise some sub-corridors by dividing the narrow corridor into five sections. This is to characterize graph regions that indicate different developmental paths over time. Our key findings are regardless of position with regards to the corridor, development is likely to occur, being in an undesirable part within the corridor is more likely to hurt development than aid it, and countries with close geographical proximity and similar historical backgrounds are likely to observe similar developmental movements.
